After Dark

Why do sorrows fill my dreams?

Has the flickering light in me burned out?

So it seems.

Have these nightmares burnt out my soul?

Or does the man with the axe still play a role?

When shall I be free from this terror?

When will this suffering come to an end?

Why doesn’t God hear my plea

To destroy the evil torturing me?

The night still reigns.

Why can’t I flee

Away from this misery?

Hours go by as lifetimes,

I dread every minute of fear.

Will it all pass away,

Dissolve into oblivion as I open my eyes?

Yes, finally...

The sun has risen

A new day has begun.
